Hey everyone. I’m participating in the Altenew – Paint A Flower Sunflower blog hop today. You should have arrived here from Tania’s blog. The Paint A Flower Sunflower is absolutely stunning and creates beautiful cards. Let me share what I’ve created.
For my card today I used the newly released Woodless Watercolor Pencils and the Paint-A-Flower Sunflower. I love sunflowers so this stamp set was perfect for me to color. With the new woodless pencils that I am currently obsessed with it was easy to create a gorgeous card.
Stamping my image in brown ink, I pulled a few of the watercolor pencils out and began to add color to my image. I pulled color directly from the pencil and also by adding color directly to the paper. Mixing tones of orange, yellow and greens allowed my palette to rest easily on my off white watercolor paper.
I made sure to build up my color gradually instead of all at once. Making sure to heat set the color before adding more. Once I had the last round of color on my image I heat set it once again.
Wanting to pull in some brown from the watercolor panel, I trimmed down my watercolor paper and layered it on a piece of dark brown cardstock. I only allowed the brown color to peek through at the top and left side of the image. To finish off my card I stamped a sentiment from the Paint-A-Flower Sunflower set and added a few gold baubles. I placed my panel onto a white card base.
In case you thought your watercoloring collection couldn’t get any better, think again. Create stunning watercolor effects with our Woodless Watercolor Pencils! This set includes a wide range of beautiful, vibrant colors, and each pencil comes pre-sharpened and ready to use. You can either apply the color onto paper and blend with a wet brush, or pick it up with the brush directly from the pencil. The pigment dissolves smoothly, leaving no marks on the paper, and the colors can be easily mixed and layered for various effects.
This set contains 24 pencils that come in 24 unique colors. The Woodless Watercolor Pencil 24 set is $44.99 and well worth the price. Here is an color swatch so you can see the colors.
